Storyline

In 1959, a little girl was born into a poor family, in one of the most remote, mountainous areas of Guatemala. One year later, civil war broke out in Guatemala, and her tiny village was soon swept up in a tidal wave of violence. What could one family do to stand up for their rights, in a time of such great change? What could one young woman do, to tell the world what was happening, and to try to stop the suffering? What could the indigenous Maya people do, to try to gain a voice in the determination of their own future? This is a story about a family, a people, and a destiny -- "Rigoberta Menchu: Daughter of the Maya". After more than five decades of political turmoil, the courage and tenacity of the indigenous Maya people of Guatemala shines through in this beautiful, tragic, and ultimately triumphant film. "Rigoberta Menchu: Daughter of the Maya" tells their story of struggle and success, through the personal journey of 1992 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Rigoberta Menchu Tum.
